    In what comes as a reminder as to why CNN is one of the worst news organization, they broke what might be the oldest major news stories to ever be "broken:" the RMS Titanic has sunk. The amazing story, which CNN apparently missed for 102 years, details a tragic tale of the RMS Titanic, which was supposedly an "unsinkable ship." Ironically, the Titanic sunk on its maiden voyage. Last night, CNN got the news. In a news segment last night, CNN blared the headline, "Breaking News: Titanic Sunk 102 Years Ago Tonight:"

    For all the noise about the State Department's final environmental review of the Keystone XL Pipeline being a "blow" to pipeline opponents, the report contains more than enough information for Secretary of State John Kerry -- a respected environmental champion -- to conclude that the pipeline is not in the national interest. Although you have to dig a bit, the report recognizes the dangers associated with the tar sands fuel that the pipeline would transport. Kerry's obligation is to determine what is in the national interest. For all its flaws, the report acknowledges that the tar sands that would get...

    On April 1, Washington Mayor Vincent Gray was denied a second term, defeated in the primary by upstart city councilwoman Muriel Bowser. The beginning of the end came on March 10, when U.S. Attorney Ronald Machen struck a plea bargain with a wealthy businessman who confessed he'd spent $668,000 on an illegal "shadow campaign" to fund get-out-the-vote efforts that helped Gray win the mayoral office in 2010. So the corrupt mayor of America's most important city is thrown out. A political scandal? The same networks that were utterly breathless over the local story of Gov. Chris Christie's aides slowing traffic...

"Well, I think he had his eight years and he's caused a lot of trouble for our country and he perpetuated a war in Iraq that was unnecessary and wrong-headed," Paul said of Cheney on CNN's Larry King Live. "So I would say that it would be best he not be so critical right now."

    The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) released a report claiming that CNN got climate science “wrong” in 30 percent of its segments on global warming largely because they allowed actual debate to happen on man-made global warming. UCS noted that allowing debate on the subject “suggests that established climate science is still widely debated among scientists” and allows global warming skeptics to confuse the public with their dissenting comments. “The biggest step that CNN could take to increase accuracy is to stop hosting debates about established climate science and instead focus debates on whether and how to respond to climate...

Lecturing Americans one last time, Morgan said “guns belong on a military battlefield. . . . Not in the hands of civilians.” We can at least credit Morgan for his belated honesty. Over the last year or so, Morgan rubbed us the wrong way, as he did millions of TV viewers. He talked when he should have listened....

"That is the standard beacon frequency" for both so-called black boxes -- the cockpit voice recorder and the flight data recorder, said Anish Patel, president of pinger manufacturer Dukane Seacom. "They're identical." But experts cautioned that no confirmation had been made that the signal was linked to the missing plane. "This could be a variety of things," said oceanographer Simon Boxall, who said the frequency...

Just the little I knew of Soviet history at that time led me to conclude that one should never be naďve about Russia. Wisely, the Carter administration soon implemented a wide-ranging and powerful set of sanctions against the USSR. By comparison, Barack Obama is now making Jimmy Carter look like Attila the Hun with a series of...

What led to the loss of O'Brien's arm was a case of TV gear.

Malaysia’s Flight 370 has been the big story on cable news recently, but nowhere has it been bigger than on CNN. Despite the almost complete lack of information about what happened, CNN made it a semi-permanent story, pre-empting many shows for Flight 370 coverage—mostly consisting of speculation, since there were hardly any facts to go on. By the time the network’s Don Lemon was speculating that the plane might have disappeared into a black...

    Chelsea Handler, interviewing on Piers Morgan's soon-ending "Piers Morgan Live," slammed the host, calling him a "terrible interviewer" and guessing that his incompetency is the reason why his show is coming to an end. Handler began by saying that she had to "tolerate" the "nonsense" of Morgan completely ignoring her during commercial breaks. "You can't even pay attention for sixty seconds," she scoffed. "You're a terrible interviewer." "Well," Morgan shrugged, "You just weren't keeping my attention." "But that's not my problem," Handler retorted. "This is your show. You need to pay attention to the guests you invited on your show."...

    (CNN) - Nearly 30 senators staged an overnight debate on the Senate floor Monday night through Tuesday morning, trying to bring attention to what they say is a dire need to combat climate change with legislative action. But Sen. Mary Landrieu, the new chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, was noticeably absent from the demonstration. The vulnerable Democrat faces re-election this fall in Louisiana, a state with large swaths of conservative voters. And Republicans aren't letting her absence go unnoticed. The National Republican Senatorial Committee, which aims to get Republicans elected to the Senate, put out a...

    This will undoubtedly appear in everyone’s timelines today as we approach the deadline to avoid the tax consequences of ObamaCare’s individual mandate. After several months of cratering in the polls, CNN reports today that its approval rating is “rebounding slightly.” How slightly? It doesn’t even get outside the margin of error — or crack the 40% mark: According to the poll, 39% of Americans say they support the health care law, up from 35% in December, a record low in CNN polling. The uptick of four percentage points is within the survey’s sampling error. Fifty-seven percent of those questioned say...

  • CNN: Piers Morgan out – Sarah Brady in

    03/02/2014 6:07:56 PM PST · by Red in Blue PA · 58 replies
    Like certain other TV networks, CNN likes gun control supporters. For more than a year, it allowed Piers Morgan to relentlessly and viciously attack the Second Amendment and anyone who supports it, until Morgan’s perennially low-rated show had cost the network so much in lost advertising revenue that keeping him on the air was no longer financially sustainable.As noted in the previous Alert story, CNN recently made the decision to cut “Piers Morgan Live” from its lineup. However, from the network’s perspective, the problem was the messenger, not the message.So, this week, with Morgan on the way out, CNN teamed with another anti-gun messenger—Sarah Brady, chairwoman...

    CNN honchos have been busy putting together a list of potential Piers Morgan replacements to host a nightly chat show much like his failed one, and Confidenti@l has learned which names are being tossed around. “Rosie O’Donnell is at the top; the rest are Joy Behar, Ann Curry, Anthony Bourdain, David Muir, Star Jones, Anderson Cooper and Rachel Maddow,” one person with knowledge of the list tells us. “Most of the people that are being considered are ones that either create news, are going to make news or have rated really high on television in the past.”
